Indian customers had to settle for the 64GB model of the OnePlus 2 when the handset launched in India last year, leaving some out of luck if they didn’t need that much space or wanted to save a little money. After missing its promise later last year, the 16GB OnePlus 2 has finally made its way to India for Rs. 22,999.
Other than the difference in storage capacities, there is only one other hardware change between the two models. The 16GB version comes with 3GB of RAM rather than 4GB, but this isn’t going to make a noticeable difference to day to day performance.
The 16GB OnePlus 2 still comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 810 SoC, 13 megapixel rear camera with OIS, 5 megapixel front facing camera, a 3,300mAh battery, fingerprint scanner and dual 4G SIM support, which makes it a reasonably high-end device. The smartphone doesn’t run Android 6.0 Marshmallow officially yet, but its latest OxygenOS 2.2 update quashed some of the handset’s niggle bugs with dual-SIM settings, added better OTG support, and Android security patches.Our thoughts: OnePlus 2 review
The 16GB model is available in the country exclusively from Amazon India for Rs. 22,999. You won’t need to bother with those irritating invites either, as the company dropped the system in India last month.
